The Loop 410 Pileup Reminds Us That We Have No Idea What To Do When It Snows 

Thursday evening's snow wasn't fun and games for all San Antonians. A major pileup on Friday morning reminded us that Texas isn't really prepared for snow.

Icy conditions on the highway caused a Texas-sized pileup on the Loop 410 exit ramp to Jackson Keller around 7 a.m., according to FOX29 San Antonio. About 20 cars were involved in the crash, with some ending up completely turned around. Cars were mangled, trapping some drivers. The black ice on the road made crashing practically unavoidable. Many of the cars were totaled.
This was bound to happen. San Antonio wasn't made for this.
